Toaster's Bluff Buff

We have spotted a number of these pieces on the streets of East London and suspected that they may have been created by the Toasters. That has now been confirmed by the Toasters who dropped us some pictues of the work via email. Here is what they had to say about their latest project "Bluff Buff"

'Bluff Buff' is our reaction to the authorities obsession with painting inaccurate coloured shapes over graffiti. We paint the Toaster silouette beside these buff marks. It is an inconspicous and subtle attempt of getting up and highlights the ridiculousness of the pre exsisting council cover ups.
The Toaster form resembles the adjacent buff so conceivably there is less chance of the it being buffed. No tags are harmed during this project.

It the councils used anti graffiti coating all they need do is powerwash off with warm water and the Graffiti will be removed. so you can go on Graffiti as long easily removed and no over job paint over

Hrag Vartanian of Hyperallergic recently told me about this Flickerset by Lord Jim: he photographs buffed walls and calls them 'street rothkos' :)

i love the paintings that are created by painting over graffiti. I am a oil painter and have painted many paintings of exteriors of buildings with these marking because i find them very beautiful. I am now working with only painting these little surprises.
